2008

Many news events over the year leading up to "Polygamy Day ® 8," had great impact on the fight for freedom for consenting adult polygamists.

In September, 2007, Warren Jeffs, the criminal leader of the rogue Mormon polygamy sect, the FLDS, was found guilty in Utah for arranging the underaged marriage of a 14 year old girl to her non-polygamous cousin. The media was notified that the Polygamy Movement Opposes Warren Jeffs. In the following April, 2008, Texas raided that same rogue sect for more allegations of underaged marriage. Again, the media was notified that the National Polygamy Rights Movement for Consenting Adults Disavows FLDS. In July, 2008, "mainstream" Mormon, Senator Harry Reid, held an official Congressional Hearing exclusively into the FLDS sect as being "organized crime." However, Senator Reid deceptively dropped the word "Mormon" to falsely imply that "all polygamists" do what the FLDS do (which they do not, of course).

Throughout all these news events, the National Polygamy Advocate, Mark Henkel kept the media informed of the actual facts. From his many appearances on CourtTV (called, TruTV, from 2008 onward), to his being reported by the Associated Press, and to his extensive appearances in a John Stossel special report on ABC-TV's "20/20" about consenting-adult non-Mormon polygamy, Mr. Henkel consistently worked to keep the media informed of the real facts about the national polygamy rights movement for consenting adults. (Additionally, John Stossel later also wrote an excellent syndicated op-ed about the 20/20 broadcast with Mr. Henkel.)

Also, in May, 2008, the California State Supreme Court (where six of the seven justices are Republicans), legalized so-called "same sex marriage" by determining that the "right to marry" is an individual right. Many supposed conservatives continued to make the mistake of reacting as "democrats" - pushing majoritarianism with a referendum to let big government define marriage. Not only are they beginning to lose the battle against so-called "same sex marriage" because anti-republican "democrat" processes can just as easily empower other majorities to later re-define marriage another way, but in some places, some marriage control "democrats" have even had to give up because they could not get the support at all.

These all magnified the opportunities for the Polygamy Rights WIN-WIN solution to end the marriage debate altogether.

So, ultimately, polygamy supporters had much to celebrate on August 19, 2008, "Polygamy Day ® 8."


Polygamy Day is August 19




     POLYGAMY is NOT "bad for women"
Dr. Joyce Brothers: "Polygamy is not as bad as people think. I would rather be third in line of a good man than the only wife of a jerk."
[Live, as Guest: Bill Maher's "Politically Incorrect", Comedy Channel, Dec. 22, 1994]


     POLYGAMY is NOT "Immoral"
Dr. Laura Schlessinger: "In the polygamous society of the Bible, adultery is defined as sexual intercourse between a man (whether married or unmarried) and a woman married to someone else. In biblical times, most societies allowed men to marry more than one woman."
["The Ten Commandments", Pg. 218, © 1998 Dr. Laura Schlessinger]
